RAILWAYS ARE BLAMELESS  The    country's    Development    anc"  Brisk   Business   Development  Responsible.  President Shaug-huessy of the  C. P. R. recently seat a full  statement of the car shortage  situation from the railway side,  to Premier Laurier. We have  not space for the entire communication but we quote therefrom :  "We recognize to its fullest  extent the obligations imposed  upon railway companies, that receive from parliament their charters and attendant privileges, to  serve the public truly aud well,  and if through any fault of their  own, they fail to do this, they  deserve the severest criticism.  "Have our railway companies  been executing these works during the past five years or have  they, with indifference to public  convenience aud for their own  increased profit, been taking advantage of the great augmentation of the revenues resulting  from these brisk business condition's, without spending the  necessary money to do whatever  lay in their power to provide the  additional rolling stock equipment and the requisite extension  of their facilities to meet- the  situation?  TKEMHNDOUS  INCREASE  "I can answer for onl}** one  railway company. At the end of  the year L901 the Canadian Pacific Railway company had 732  locomotives and 22,473 freight  car,.. At the end of 1.06, five  years later, the company had  1,204 locomotives aiid 37,467  freight cars, so that in these five  years, there was an increase of  472 locomotives aud 14,9*->4 freight,  cars, or about 70 per cent: in each  case, without taking into account  the fact that each locomotive and  each car was of much greater  capacity than those previously in  service. These, with ��� the passenger cars and other rolling  stock equipment purchased and  built, or in process of construction at the end of the year, represent an expenditure approximating $2S,000,000. During the  same five years the outlay for  other facilities, such as line improvements, shops, round-houses  and other works calculated to  facilitate the operation' of the  line was about $44,000,000, or a  total of $72,000,000, and these  figures, understand, are quite exclusive "of $35,000,000 spent by  the company in. these same years  for the construction of new railway lines to further develop the  the country and for steamships to  strengthen Canada's position on  the- Atlantic - - ocean.���For���these  latter purposes another class of  security is issued, while the cost  of equipment and ��� additions and  improvements ' was met by the  sale of the company's capital  stock, which, realized more than  its face value and by appropriations from the company's cash  reserves.  SEVENTY-TWO  MILLIONS  "So that, during these five  years, in their endeavor to meet  the mos-t gratifying growth of  the country's business, the shareholders of this company put back  into the property cash to the  large amount of $72,000,000, an  average of over $14,000,000 per  annum, or about two and one-  half time's the sum that they had  received during the same period  in dividends on their shares.  "We have an order to-daj*-, for  delivery during the next four or  five months rolling stock equipment to the value of $11,S08,751,-  14 and we hope to have it all in  service before the autumn business - commences to move. So  that you see that there has been  no disposition on the part of the  Canadian Pacific to shirk its  responsibilities or to fill its coffers to the neglect of the country.  FRUIT AT MIDWAY  The Midway Star is authority for  the statement that at least 5000 fruit  trees will be planted around and west  of Midway this spring-. "We look to see  fruit become a growing industry in  the Kettle valley for many miles west  of Midway. "With climate, soil and  watesi. adapted to fruit what else is  wanting. W. H. Norris who has made  a great'1 success of apple raising intends to) go in for a test of grape  growingi.  BACK HOME.  Messrs, A7 Logan and Jas. McCreath, who have been touring the  country for the last eight weeks, returned home- Wednesday evening.  They report having had a very good  time and we had hoped to secure a  write-up of the trip . from them, but  have failed. They report lots of cold,  stormy weather back east and mention  the fact tliat they had no opportunity  to wear those new Panamas while  away.  While in New'York they seriously  considered the purchase of an automobile and crossing the continent by  same, but ultimately decided to abandon it for the old beaten paths.  A few cent pieces, relics ot the effete  east, which they happened to have-kept  by mistake, grew to look very large to  them at this end of the trip, nevertheless they rode in. They spent Wednesday night, or most of it, telling a  group of admiring friends how the  play caine up, and Thursday morning  settled down to Ihe old steady jobs.  We are glad to see the boys back and  to know they had a good time.  - SLUMP IN DIAMONDS  A slump has occurred in the diamond  market. This will hit Greenwood hard  but not half so hard as the continuance of a shortage in f jel. Greenwood's prosperity is intimately connected with the black diamond industry and unless the product of the  Crow's Nest rolls in" pretty soon, we  will hare to cancel large orders for  the Kimberlcy article.  BITTEN BY FROST  Reports from many points in Eastern Washington and Idaho show that  recent frost was very destructive to  fruit prospects. From Walla Walla,  Snake.River, Lewiston, Clarkston and  other points comes the story of ruin to  the fruit crop, The estimates of damage are from 50 per cent to total, but  these reports are generally worse than  the real condition. The former however hasn't the monopoly of this hard  luck business.  JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION  The Jamestown exposition was formally opened by President Roosvelton  April 26th. The naval review is spoken of as a thrilling spectacle. England, Austria, Germany, and the  Argentine had some of their finest  ships in line. International courtesies  were the order of the day and the  booming of cannon spoke of goodwill  and not of war's alarms.  THINGS DOING  A Texas cyclone kills five.

A Belgian syndicate is reported to  have bought 18,000 acres of land between Vernon aud Armstrong for  S700.000. The land will be placed under  a canal for irrigation purposes and  subdivided into small tracts.  A B. C. Fruit Growers' Association  has been formed ar Armstrong, the  object of the Association being the  b'uying and selling and handling on  commission of all kinds of farm produce and agricultural implements.  He was looking for a gas leak with  a lighted match and found it. As a  result Brantford lost two store build-  ing"-. '_   The new Irish land bill, passed by  the Commons, provides that owners  may be compelled to sell their Hnds to  the tenants.  THE LORD'S DAY ACT  Acting' Premier   Tallow   made the  following announcement in  the Legis  lature just before it3 closing :  "In fulfilment pf the promise I made  some days ago," "the Government has  decided to announce to-day its attitude  upon the Lord's Day Act. The honorable the Attorney-General, who has  had this matter under advisement, will  make the statement."  The Attorney General then followed  with this brief statement:  "I have discussed this matter with  my colleagues and given it full consideration," "and we have decided that  we will not assent to aiiy prosecutions  under that act."  Which means that if the Lord's Day  Act is to be enforced in British Columbia it is up to the Dominion government to enforce it.  MIDWAY AND VERNOM  Long-talked of and Hoped  for by Many  i   TO   THE   FRONT  But While we Hope for the Best are  Still far From Sure of its Early  Building.  When the Dominion Commons  the other day voted thirty millions of dollars in sixty minutes,  for aid to public works it made a  record that- will compare for  rapid work, with the divorce  courts of the United States.  Among the enterprises subsidized was the Midway and Vernon railway, to which was given  $3200 for a distance of  1*50 miles.  If ail the schemes aided have  the merit however that the Midway and Vernon has the public  money voted will be well expended.  The road will run through a  farming, milling and mining  district that will give it a paying tonnage from  the inception.  It is understood that the delay  in starting work on this long-  looked for public work has been  caused by the apprehension that  the above aid to the road would  not be renewed. Now however  that this large assistance as well  as that of the local government  is a certainty, the public has a  rig-lit to look for something to be  doing.  In this connection we may add  that those who feared that Duncan Ross, .member for the district  would not work as heartily for  the scheme as before have had  their want of faith disproved. It  was hinted in some quarters that  owing to the alleged attitude of  some of the promoters of the  road in the recent election, that  Mr. Ross' zeal for the cause had  grown cold. Of course those  who best knew that gentleman,  knew him incapable of anything'  that be 'mischievous or harmful  to his constituency.  Should work on the. Midway  and Vernon now proceed as we  believe it will we look to see a  great development in the West  Pork, a district that for potentialities ranks with the best in the  province.  VICTORIA DAY  Strike or no strike, peace  or war, meal tickets in sight  or hand-outs imminent it  will make no difference the  24th' and 25th of May celebration will certainly take  place.

'GAME RESERVES  The second report of the Provincial  Game and Forest Warden in refering  to the matter of game reserves which  we recently urged says :  "The formation of game reserves  has been mooted from time to time,  _and_has_lately__attracted_m.ore_atten-  tion than ever. It is felt that unless  tracts of land are at once set apart for  this purpose the finding of suitable  spots will be extremely difficult. At  the present time there can be found  small territories in almost every district which are unoccupied ,2,nd there  is nothing to hinder their thorough  protection. This is not liable to be  the case for many years and the necessity of creating these reserves, while  it can be done, cannot be too strongly  urged.  Not only have our own people taken  an interest in this matter, but noted  sportsmen from Great Britain, the  United States, and other countries���  men ���who have travelled all over the  world in quest of sport aud whose  opinion must be valuable���have pointed out the benefits accruing from such  reserves iu other countries. That such  sanctuaries for game would insure  some of our most valuable species from  destruction and also assist 'in keeping  the surrouuding country well stocked,  is not the only benefit derived. The  game in any well protected reserve  soon becomes so .tame t'lat anybody,  man, woman, or child, can have an  opportunity of seeing and watching it.  There are numbers of people who  either are unable or have not the  means to take a costly hunting trip,  who could and would take the greatest  pleasure iu spending a short holiday  in the vicinity of some game reserve  where they could have a chance of  seeing such game as mountain sheep,  or even deer or goats. It would also  prove an attraction for all classes of  touriits.  USE YOUR DISCRETION  Since the article was set up in regard  to .he Flumerfelt prize essays, we have  a letter from Mr. Flumerfelt sayinc  that the condition in regard to the  length of the essays being only 3,000  words would not be enforced, and that  'no limit would be placed thereon.  LAYING OFF MISERS  The  Big  Mines Got Busy  Themselves.  FERNIE CAUSE OF TR0DB1E  The Crow's Nest Coal Troubles Started  the Ball Rolling in the  Boundary.  If the question of higher wages  in the Boundary have to come,  it is well that it come now. With  suspended operations at the smelters of the Granby and Dominion  Copper companies, it is little sacrifice to the companies to close  down the mines and thresh the  subject out with the men. The  demand is general in the district  for a four dollar wage, the equal  of that obtained in the Coeur  d'Alenes and Butte.  The Granby company was "first  confronted with the question, and  unable to secure prompt compromise with employees, decided  to lay the men off.  Those in. the Snowshoe followed, and the Dominion Copper  cempany closed down on Thursday. The mine and smelter managers have been conferring over  the question and it is not at all  improbable that so soon as the  coal mines open "the matter of a  district wage scale will be settled,  and the summer's hum begin.  A large number of the men  laid off took occasion, of the  same to make a visit to Spokane  and outside.  With mines in safer, better condition than those of Butte or the  Coeur d'Alenes, and with a better  climate, the Boundary need bave  uo-fear .that with an equal wage  schedule, it can get the pick of-  the miners.  Quite a'large number of the  Granby employees went to work  for the B. C. Copper Co., both at  Deadwood and at Summit. ...  7 With'.settled labor conditions  a season of great prosperity is at  our door.  THE SITUATION  ��� The industrial situation in the  Boundary as we go to press is  about as follows:  The Granby company has  offered the underground men a 10  per cent advance all round, which  has not yet been accepted.  The result of Thursday's voting in the coal district is not  known and we are advised by  wire that the same will not be  given out until tomorrow.  A conference between the operators of the various mines and  smelters and the representatives  of labor will be held at Phoenix  this Friday evening.  PRICES OF METALS  The prices of the metals continue  X?_y_?5_*_!__t__Xi and with slight fiuc-  tuations, hover around  the  following:  Copper      24 cents  Silver ���      65 cents  Lead        5 cents  OUTPUT OF BOUNDARY ORES  The LOW grade mines of the Boundary, which first began shipment in  1900, sending out 100,000 tons that  year, have been steadily increasing.

We  do not presume to advise the employers of labor as to what they  can afford to pay, or as to what  labor is worth, bnt we do beg to  suggest that all the employers in  the district ought to get together  and fix a scale for the district and  fix it on the most liberal lines.  For our part with the metals  fluctuating we think a sliding  scale the most equitable. This  constant unrest and agitation is  not conducive. to the welfare of  employer, employee, industry or  district and the sooner- some  equitable condition is realized the  better for all.  If the industry here cannot  afford to pay enough to secure  the best men and to retain them  in content it were better to know  it before other millions arc invested, and if the employed here  are. not satisfied with what the  industry can afford to pay, the  sooner they know it is to their interest to go elsewhere the better.  But in deciding all these questions we feel that conditions of  mines, of climate, of living ought  to enter into the computation.  FRIDAY, MAY 3, LOOT.  ���T-HE- REWJUEIIL_IE_____SQ_L  CONCILATION  The demand is general apparently all along the mining line  in the Boundary for a higher  wage schedule. We understand  that employers generally in the  district have been asked for a  daily increase in the wage scale.  We believe that labor ought to  receive its full reward and if the  mining business in the district  can afford larger returns for work  it ought to pay to the full value  of such work. It is unsafe however without knowing the relative values of the ore, or the  relative cost and comfort of living to say that one camp ougbt  to par as much as another. Mining is a more daugerous business  than farming and for that reason  ought to command higher wages.  Just so living in one section is  much less comfortable and much  less healthy than iu another aiid  for that reason labor ought to  receive higher rewards in such  localities.  It is unsound reasoning to take  a wage scale iu one community  and to argue that it ought to  apply to all communities. If the  argument we have heard many  times, that the men in the Boundary are -worseoff after each raise  in wages than before on account  of a more than corresponding increase in the cost of living, made  so arbitrarily because the merchants knew of the increase, then  it were mercy to labor not to increase wages. But we do not  admit that such has been the case  EDITORIAL NOTES  Envy has knocked the  underpinning from many a man.  The B. C. Legislature and the  Dominion Parliament both prorogued last week.  ��� Laavvers are all right on a bill  of costs but they are failures as  managers of coal mines.  The lowering of interest rates  in Loudon and New York doesn't  appear to affect the Boundary.  Be busy. It is wodry not work  that kills. Rust wears out the  knife blade, the grindstone sharpens it.  The "Foot of. the throne" to  which Hon. Richard'McBride has  gone, sounds all right, but what  does it mean ?  Look out for something to  b appen up in Central camp before many months. It is surely  coming to the front soon.  The featernity among mining  men in time of sickness and  trouble is sublime. Their hearts  control their pocket books.  What a world of opposites  this is. The low range of the  thermometer last Avinter explains  the high price of meats this  spring.  The Senate bar Avill hereafter  be closed. It never Avas * a dignified spectacle anyway. Parliaments are not designed nor are  they adapted to the business.  Awhotjgh the Great Northern  magnates have recently been into  the Boundary, nothing has yet  occured to excite hopes that the  Midway-Greenwood road is to be  built this summer.  Now that the Legislatures and  Parlimeuts are prorogued let the  spring farming begin.* There is  some grafting to be done in the  orchard, and the muck rake is  needed in the back- yard.  Nature wastes nothing. The  decay of winter only goes to enrich the spring time. Out of its  death comes new life. The leaves  that fell last autumn enrich the  bloom of this year's rose, and the  perfume of this year's violet.  The new labor laAv passed by  the Parliament of Canada is to  have an immediate opportunity  to put to test its conciliation  features.  Both parties to the existing  coal trouble appear anxious to  have government intercession.  The operators Avere unwilling to  make terms Avith the men and  the men thought it advisable not  to return to work but to let the  laAv hold tli. balances'and decide.  Mr. McKenzie King on behalf of  the government and Mr. Lewis  on behalf of the men made efforts  to secure a reopening of the  mines pending the sitting of the  commission but without success.  We trust and believe that the  new law may be equal to the  occasion and that a happy issue'  may come to the present disastrous struggle.  Whichever side wins the country will have suffered enor-  mouslv.  The northwest is not having  all it would like. FolloAving  severe cold, came snow blockades  and following snow blockades  have now come freshets and wash  outs. All the railways have had  and are having a strenuous time  up there.  In speaking of the suicide of  Mr. E. G. Russell at Port Rupert  the Vancouver World intimates  that if financial troubles prompted it, the rhore's the pity, because many friends would have  beeu only too glad to have helped  him. Doubtless, but he's dead  noAv, aud '-past all help or need  of help."  These are strenuous days for  the dwellers in the mining  camps, made so by the uncertainty attaching to conditions  brought about by the coal strike.  The real situation in the Boundary is bad enough but the stories  sent from Rosslaud to the Nelson  News, and from Grand Forks to  the Canadian about, the affairs of  the B. C. Copper company are not  true. Why do not these papers  get their Greenwood hews'from  Greenwood ?  Canada's .fiscal year closed Twith  March 31, thus making a nine-month  period. The trade returns for the nine  months show a grand aggregate of  $462,511,618, or an increase of S65,-  652,413 over the same period in the  previous year. This gives an increase  of over $50,000,000 in imports and over  ��15,000,000 in exports.  .' There was an increase of over half a  million in the output of the mines,  S7,000.000 in the produce, of the forest,  31,500,000 in animals and their products, and SI,750,000 in manufactures.  There was a decrease of S2,3OO,O0O in  the fisheries, and $4,500,000 in agriculture. ':.'  MINERS' LIFE INSURANCE  The second annual report of the  Fedral Provident and Accident Association, consisting of the employes  of the Federal Mining and Smelting  Company, shows disbursements in 1906  amounting to S24,701. The membership of tnis association is compulsory,  and the employes are assessed Si per  month. For each dollar so paid in the  Federal Mining and Smelting Company contributes SO cents.  The mines embraced by this system  of life insurance are the Morning at  Mullan, Standard Mammoth at Mace,  Tiger at Burke, and the L,ast Chance  at Wardner, the employes numbering  about 1,500.  Following is a list of the benefits and  losses subject to payment:  When an employe meets death by  accident in or around the mines, those  dependent upon him receive 51,500.  Partial disablement, rendering the  person unfit for work, 3750.  -Loss of a foot, $750.  Loss of an eye, S750.  There are also weekly benefits and  'other payments.  During 1906 the members of the association subscribed 517; 125, and the  Federal company S3,563, a total of  $25,689. Deducting expenditures of  5524,701 leaves a balance of S988, which  added to the amount brought forward  makes 5*9,357. The claims allowed aud  unpaid amount to $5,648,  The management of the association  consists of six trustees, three of whom  are elected by the members and three  by the Federal Company,���Mining  World.

A soldering lluid which has proved  useful is made by killing 2 quarts of  hydrochloric acid with all the zinc it  will take up. Then to the acid a quart  of -water is added, or it may have to be  added before the zinc will iully dis  solve.

I' This fluid is used for all kinds of  soldering and has been found especially desirable with greasy or dirty connections, as well as for soldering to  iron. It is claimed that the glycerine  prevents all rust, which plays havoc  ���with many soldering fluids which contain hydrochloric acid.

the Rambler. In the new workings,
between 7 and 9 levels, a vein of rich
ore over nine feet wide is' being developed, and as work progresses the ore
body continues to improve. The recent
extensive development of the Rambler
has proven the mine to be a veritable
bonanza. Rich ore galore has been
uncovered, especially during the driving of the SS0 foot upraise to connect
with the 800 foot shaft. Although sure
of the final outcome, nevertheless the
tedious undertaking caused the energetic manager many anxious moment*.
Now, however, he can point with pride
to his work. There is enough ore in
sight betwscn 7 and 9-levels to pay all
the expense of the costly undertaking
and a few mbstantial dividends besides.—The Kootentan.
